Since his last Booth solo feature, Swagga Like Crook, Crooked I has been a busy man. In addition to preparing for the release of his debut album, B.O.S.S. (Beginning Of Something Serious), the Long Beach native has been working on a second Hip-Hop Weekly series—not to mention, he’s teamed up with Joe Budden, Joell Ortiz, and Royce da 5’9” to form the Slaughterhouse supergroup. Still on that high-energy heatwave, Crook displays his disgust with all the gimmick rappers in the game, reminding the audience “I’m Still A MC.” Shouting “F*ck dumbin’ down!” the emcee sticks to his decision to stay underground rather than selling out. Komplex turns up the synths, completing that rare combo of top-notch MCing and first-rate production! B.O.S.S. is expected to be released later in ‘09; in the meantime, keep it locked to DJBooth.net for Crook’s exclusive interview with our own DJ Z.
